While collecting shorebird reference on a cool, overcast winter day in Bandon, Oregon, I saw these Sanderlings racing after the waves, pausing to probe for prey hidden in the wet sand. Although Sanderlings are still considered fairly common, some surveys show troubling declines of up to 80 percent since the early 1970s. Their breeding, migratory and wintering habitats are at risk from coastal pollution, development and other forms of habitat loss. I felt inspired to portray these birds as they were on that day, for they seemed to be thriving in their natural environment.
